Why is there only one time of year – as goblins, ghouls, and ghosts frolic on front lawns – when we embrace THE FEAR? At all other times, THE FEAR dominates us, controls us, and prevents us from greatness. What is there to THE FEAR? Disagreement? Criticism? Humiliation? Whatever THE FEAR is that consumes you, embrace it, along with this Imperial Pumpkin Ale. Only then will the true artist in you rise up.

[ As Flying Dog Wild Dog The Fear Imperial Pumpkin Ale ].
[ Courtesy of my European Secret Summer Santa 2015 ]. Clear dark brown color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, light beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, caramel, pumpkin spices, sweet tobacco, allspices, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long long duration, spicy bitter, spices, pumpkin spices, roasted, perfume, flowers, dark fruit. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. IMO. way to spicy - perfumed for me .. small sips is okay but not a bottle or pint ;( [20150827]

Heavy spicy aromas, cinnamon, clove, all that allspice, and pumpkin. Hazy dark orange-amber with a mostly fading off-white head. Pretty dry, very spicy, some booze. Medium-full bodied.

Slubgob (249) - West Hartford, USA - OCT 24, 2015
One year old bottle, poured into a tall goblet. Quickly dissipating khaki head, Opaque mahogony color. Ginger and clove in the nose. In the mouth, similar spice notes with a touch of cinnamon. Lying underneath is a dark roasted malt, which comes through mostly on the finish. Not really a lot of pumpkin, it reads more as an intense brown ale with pumpkin spices. Generally not wild about pumpkin beers and this isn’t changing my mind, but this is OK.

This was poured into a snifter due to the fact that this is imperialized. The appearance was a dark brown color with a creamy to off white foamy head that dissipated within about a slim half minute. Lacing runs light. The smell has a spectacular balance of the pumpkin, pumpkin spices and subtle sweet cocoa to blend together. The taste was mildly spicy over the sweetness making a great effort to bring back the sweetness of the cocoa malt in and all around. A light mainly sweet cocoa to somewhat pumpkin aftertaste runs into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation runs somewhat light allowing the spices to run as the harshness to my tongue. Overall, imperialized pumpkin ale, yup, this is what I was looking for this Autumn. I need to make more trips to New York for more of this.

onceblind (6053) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Dark brown with a thin light beige cap. Mild nose with a gentle cinnamon and earthy roast malt, and a gentle autumnal dark earthiness. Flavor is much the same; semisweet, earthy, gentle autumn flavor, gentle pumpkin spice, a wee bit of booze. Just kinda mild and whatever.

Inky black with thick white creamy head that holds well. Nutmeg and Pumpkin pie aromas with wet earth on the nose; nice mouthful with warming finish.

Very boozy. Pumpkin is not overwhelming, there is a light cocoa and vanilla taste. Dark brown/red. Clean mouth, but heavy booze taste. Tap
